World Series of Poker launches WSOP Paradise

17 July 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- On the heels of a record-shattering summer, the richest, most prestigious and longest-running poker series – the World Series of Poker – is heading to paradise this winter to kick off a new live tournament poker series, WSOP Paradise. The newly minted series, made possible through a partnership with GGPoker, is set to take place from 3-14 December 2023, at Atlantis at Paradise Island Resort and Casino in the Bahamas.

The new series builds on the momentum generated by the record-breaking 54th annual WSOP which took place at Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas on the Las Vegas Strip this summer. Featuring 15 bracelet events in total, WSOP Paradise will be headlined by a total of $50 million in guaranteed prize pools, including a $5,000 Main Event with a $15 million total prize pool guarantee, and a $1,500 Mystery Bounty with a $5 million guarantee.

In addition, WSOP Paradise will have unparalleled value for High Rollers: A massive $100k event with $5 million guaranteed, a $50k event with $2 million guaranteed, two Pot Limit Omaha events with seven-figure guarantees, and a signature $25,000 GGMillion$ event with a staggering $10 million total prize pool guarantee.

“The summer was an unprecedented success, but the vision is equally as ambitious for WSOP Paradise,” said Ty Stewart, SVP & Executive Director of the WSOP. “We have the strongest online partner in the world, and they are set to send a record number of qualifiers to a live tournament. Atlantis also has a great legacy in poker, and we believe this combination of partners can deliver poker’s most powerful new franchise for years to come. Many players say summer in Vegas is the best time of year. We hope that will only be rivaled by winter in paradise.”

GGPoker, who sent 774 players to the Main Event at this summer’s WSOP, has pledged to send at least 1,000 players to WSOP Paradise. Online qualifiers and tournament promotions, including hotel accommodations with special rates for tournament players will be available at ggpoker.com at a later date.

“GGPoker is delighted to launch WSOP Paradise and welcome hundreds of players from all over the world to Atlantis Paradise Island this December,” said Daniel Negreanu, GGPoker Global Ambassador. “It’s going to be an absolutely amazing experience, the best of poker at one of the world’s most luxurious resorts!”

“Atlantis’ 25th anniversary launches a new chapter for the resort, unveiling a multimillion-dollar transformation of the Atlantis Casino complemented by renovated guestrooms at The Royal and Michelin star chef dining experiences in time for the WSOP Paradise event. We are excited to welcome the WSOP Paradise this winter and look forward to hosting the debut of this premiere tournament series for players and their fans,” said Joe Brunini, Chief Gaming & Customer Development Officer Atlantis Paradise Island, the Bahamas.

The full schedule of events will be announced later this year. The WSOP reserves the right to cancel, change or modify the tournament or any tournament event, in part or in whole, without notice.
